The many ways to achieve teeth straightening with us

If you’ve been thinking about teeth straightening Marylebone, because you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, then you may be aware that there are a number of discreet options available. However, finding a dentist who offers a wide range of devices to ensure that you get the optimum treatment to meet your alignment needs may have been a little tricky. At Orthodontist London, Dr Mary Lo has specialised in orthodontics for over 25 years and is a consultant orthodontist at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Her experience and expertise means that she is highly skilled and trained to get your smile looking and feeling amazing, using one of the numerous treatments that she can offer from the field of orthodontics.


With many treatments available, it is worth explaining that there is the option to have either fixed braces or aligners, which are removable. Aligners are normally used for mild to moderate issues, such as gapped or crowded teeth, over or underbites, or crossbites, and some braces are designed to address less serious alignment issues too. Fixed metal braces are typically chosen for more complex issues, but there are options to have these made more discreet, as well with enamel coloured brackets and wires. In fact, the variety of treatments are broad for teeth straightening Marylebone, but we can give you the highlights!


If you want a discreet treatment, clear aligners are a great option. They are removable, so you don’t have to eat with them in your mouth, and you can easily keep your teeth cleaned properly. The aligners push against the teeth to move them into the targeted position and this can take around 6 to 18 months, on average. If you are looking for comfort, these are also great, because they are made bespoke for your mouth and the plastic shouldn’t irritate the inside of your mouth or your gums. We can also show you a video of what your teeth will look like after treatment is completed, before you start wearing Invisalign, so you have a clear idea of what the end goal is. It should be an exciting prospect for you, knowing that your smile will be gorgeous!


If you require brackets and wires, you could be eligible to have Incognito. This is another option to Invisalign, but it involves having wires and brackets placed on the backs of the teeth, rather than the front. The brackets are made of gold alloy to avoid causing nickel allergy related issues, and each bracket is shaped to fit your individual tooth precisely. We use Cad Cam technology to achieve this and we can also show you how your teeth will appear by the end of the treatment, before you have begun!

WIN lingual system

An evolution of Incognito is the WIN lingual system, which involves the latest technology and has been developed by the creator of Incognito. This system is used to treat mild to complex cases, so it could be a great option if you want something that is discreet, but still efficient at treating more difficult issues.
